‘Thank you, Cleveland-Dodgers.’
Ryu Hyun-jin’s Toronto Blue Jays laughed alone again. For two days in a row, he was the only player to win the game and had mixed feelings of joy and sorrow with his competitors.안전놀이터
Toronto won 4-3 against the Boston Red Sox held at their home Rogers Center on the 17th (Korean time). They first gave up 2 runs to Boston in the 6th inning, but they scored 1 run each in the 7th and 9th innings, dramatically pushing the game to overtime. And although the loss was deep after giving up 1 run in the top of the 12th inning, the team tied the game again in the bottom of the 12th inning, and in the 13th inning of extra innings, Merrifield’s walk-off single scored the winning run to tie the game.
Toronto seemed to have ruined its wild card race by dropping all four home games against the Texas Rangers during the week. This is because Texas rose to second place in the wild card, and the lead between both teams increased to 2.5 games. They even fell behind the third-place Seattle Mariners by 1.5 games.
However, the matchup of the series changed on the weekend of the 16th, creating a final opportunity for a rebound. This is because Toronto alone beat Boston, and Texas and Seattle lost to the Cleveland Guardians and LA Dodgers, respectively.
And was Toronto fans’ desire for fall baseball even greater? The same results came out two days in a row. Texas lost 1-2 to Cleveland. Seattle was again blocked by the powerful Dodgers and lost 2-6. Seattle had to watch their opponent, the Dodgers, secure the division championship at home.
So the American League wild card race became a mixed bag again. Although Texas is still in second place, it has been allowed to catch up with third-place Toronto by half-wheel drive. Seattle was pushed to 4th place. Up to 3rd place can advance to fall baseball. We still don’t know who will be the final winner.
In Toronto, Ryu Hyun-jin’s role has become important. Ryu Hyun-jin will be the starter against Boston on the 18th. He should lead the team to an upward trend.
